Hi and thank you for sharing your questio with the EmpowHER community.

Extra weight will increase the risk for complications. Often times, losing weight is recommended. It really depends on your specific situation. It doesn't mean you are not a good candidate, but you may be at risk for complications.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
